Always refrigerate to let the frosting set. Once it’s set, cover the cake in fondant. Set your cake in a cake box that has room for it to fit without the fondant touching the top or sides of the box. Refrigerate again to set. This is your insurance policy when you deliver the cake. If the party is at your house, and it’s cool inside, you can leave it out. Refrigerating this kind of cake makes it easier to slice so that the filling doesn’t ooze out of every slice. You want a nice presentation. When you cake is removed from the refrigerator, please remember to give it time to ”sweat.” Don’t touch it during this period or you will leave a mark. Let the cake come to room temperature. Usually, by the time you travel to your destination, and it’s time to serve the cake, the fondant will be okay to slice and the dewy, shiny look will be gone.
When in doubt, make a test cake to see what happens when you refrigerate your cake with the intended filling and frosting/fondant. You don’t want to be surprised about this. Refrigerated fillings are delicious, though sometime they are a double-edged sword. Butter cakes do not taste their best right out of the refrigerator. Combine them with a refrigerated filling, and you have to make a choice. Cold cake or warm filling. Either one is not good. And, you don’t want people telling the host/hostess that the cake was ”dry” because it was cold. Switch to a different cake recipe or use sugar syrup on your cake layers before assembling to help the cake retain moisture so it doesn’t dry out while in the refrigerator. Remember that gum paste and royal icing decorations on a cake will be ruined if it is refrigerated.
